Seven Mile Beach Westin Grand Cayman Wedding | Texas comes to Cayman | Kara and Sammy

Kara and Sammy and their guests mostly from Texas came to Cayman for an EPIC wedding and danced until the wee hours of the night!!! Personalized bags which said “Time to drink champagne and dance on the tables” were given to each guest full of ‘necessities’ for their stay. The bridesmaids wore three different colour dress of grey, soft pink and neutral. The bride wore her cowboy boots and brought the Texas flair to this caribbean wedding.  The gorgeous setup at the Westin Hotel was amazing and under the careful eye of Lisa Dean of Divine Wedding Details the wedding went off without a hitch. As the couple were announced as husband and wife, they walked down the aisle as their guest threw mini beach balls to celebrate. Suite Elite played and the dance floor was packed. As a surprise to Sammy, Kara organized the cigar roller to come in and make cigars right there on the spot. The night ended with wish lanterns and then the groomsmen picked up the groom and chucked him in the ocean and the bride followed shortly behind.

Grand Old House Wedding |Ritz Carlton | Marcy and Josh are married

When I arrived at the Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman I was excited to see Marcy’s dress as she was just finishing up getting ready. We popped over to the lounge to meet up with the guys for a few before shots and Josh showed us his grey suit coat…. customized inside with their invitation colours with the Cayman Islands crest and the date of their wedding. I had never seen anything like this before and thought what a brilliant idea. The ceremony itself was held at Grand Old House and Marcy and Josh danced the night away under the stars after an incredible meal and yummy cupcakes. Congratulations guys on an incredible event.

Marriott Grand Cayman Beach Wedding | Taryn + Scott

Taryn and Scott were married on beach at the Marriott Grand Cayman Beach Resort. When I popped down to the beach to check on the setup I was amazed I had not seen this decor on the island before. Celebrations team were there setting up the new white wood themed decor along with some benches from massive. Jam jars filled with lemonade were available as the guests took their seats and babies breath draped the arch. Taryn carried a bouquet of white roses by celebrations and love Scott’s pink tie.

My mother, my mother-in-law and sister-in-law went on a trip to NYC over the summer of 2014. We had made several appointments all over the city for me to try on dresses. It was of course, not until the last day, last appointment, I tried on “THE DRESS” and everyone (including myself) broke out in to tears. Many friends and other brides have told me “when you find the right dress, you will know!” Everyone was right!

It really was a remarkable experience! You are extremely personable and incredibly fun to work with! Everyone loved you and are still talking about you!

No – I liked waiting. So much had gone in to getting my dress (many trips up and back to/from NYC), that I was really excited to make the big reveal a surprise!

The date was available for us to have a beach wedding! After our visit in March 2015, we knew we had made the perfect decision!

Cayman Islands Wedding |Grand Old House | Hana and Shayne

Shayne and Hana chose the Grand Old to have their celebration and it was perfect. We started early and did some fun getting ready shots and then the couple headed off for some photos at Camana Bay, the weather was a bit dodgy this day but we were still able to get some gorgeous Caribbean shots.

We have been there several times, and just fell in love with the friendly people, the fact that it is a safe, clean, quiet destination, amazing food, and of course the white sand beaches, gorgeous palm trees, Caribbean blue water and hot weather! It’s the perfect getaway, so what better place is there to celebrate a wedding with all of your favorite people?

How did you two meet?

Shayne and I met in the fall of 2009. I needed a new big screen television wired following therapy shopping after a recent break-up, and my trusty neighbour at the time (now sister in law) offered up her brother. She gave me quite the sales pitch about her brother being “very handy, and can do just about anything”. Shayne managed to turn the wiring of the tv into a six month affair, during which time he even managed to drywall his expensive flashlight inside the living room wall. My daughter, four at the time, fell in love with him and would always push him to “go see mommy” when he was in the neighbourhood. Needless to say, he never left. He admitted several years later that it was all a part of his elaborate plan to make me fall in love with him since I moved in in 2005!yellow pouhie trees at camana bayshell wall at camana baycamana bay shell wallbridge at camana bayWhat advice would you offer other couples planning a destination wedding?

Be prepared for what the weather might throw your way. We had a torrential downpour the day prior and the day of our wedding, and so I spent the night before and the morning eating Haagen-Dazs ice cream and stressing out. We were extremely lucky because the heavy rain had slowed by the time of our wedding, however we definitely did not have the “carribean” backdrop that we were obviously planning for! What matters most, and the things to keep in mind, were that the most important people were there, our girls were happy, and that I was marrying my best friend and the love of my life.

We did do a first look, and I would absolutely have done it again. It eases some of the stress to have some time alone and talk before you take the plunge and walk down the aisle!

My absolute favourite moments were seeing the kids all dressed up (they were adorable), and my nine year old daughter tear up during the vows. This was an important day for her and I was elated that the minister included both girls in such a meaningful way in the ceremony.

Rebecca, we can’t say enough good things about you. We were so surprised and absolutely grateful that you came out on another (sunnier) day so we could still have some beach photos to show from our wedding. It absolutely made our trip, you have no idea. All of our guests raved about how sweet, personable, and helpful you were, and you are just awesome with kids too! We would love to get some anniversary photos with you, when we are old and wrinkly!
